Further symptoms in my CD diagnosed 4 year old.
My son was diagnosed with CD just over a year ago & very quickly improved upon his diet change. However in the last few months a few symptoms have crept back: occasional blood with stools & thrush around his back passage, heartburn & a sore rash around his mouth.
His Father was also diagnosed at the same time and has gone on to find he cannot currently handle dairy, so my obvious suspect is dairy but it's hard to tie symptoms down, I have a niggling suspicion my son reports heartburn more frequently than it occurs as he likes the 'Tum' tablets and the rash & bowel are more accumulate symptoms.
My question is whether to ask the GP for a referral for food allergy testing, is that a waste of time? I'm loathe to cut dairy from his diet when he's just catching up on growth stunted from the gluten period.
